    I recently traded in my iphone for an android, and just realized that hippo remote is iphone only. I'm looking for a similar app for android so I can use it as a remote for my htpc. Any suggestions?

    +1 TO UNIFIED REMOTE
    I use it for everything on my HTPC....I got the paid version which has a remote for everything but Netflix
    it works with your wireless network or through BlueTooth
    Another option is G remote...it's almost as good

    That is the full name other than having pro at the end. Google or the app store should lead you to it. The pro version is awesome.

    Which phone did you get? I suggest Premote if you got a slide out like a Droid 1.

    EDIT:

    Just found out it got replaced with this ....

    I find "win remote" works best.

    All the controllers that come with it are great but you can also customise your own controller turning it into anything really.

    (crappy game pad for example)

    I use it with my tablet and use it as a giant touchpad/keyboard.

    unified remote now has a remote for netflix.... not sure if it is included with the free version.....but is worth the four dollars for the full version
